    cage tool

    If you make it into a component, you can display it as a bounding box from the Display options. Hope this helps. Z, Can this be added at the object level via attributes? Thanks, Joe
  2. Is it possible include Lumens when setting up lights? Would this scale with the scene? Thanks for reading, Joe
  3. Would it be possible to allow another computer on our license to run a "legacy" version? In my case, I have a Mac Pro stuck @ Snow Leopard I could run V6 on while running current versions on my IMac and laptop. Fingers crossed, Joe

    Attach object to plane or grid

    The contours tool can be made to place odd angled faces (or sections) on the XY plane.

    Need to cut big mesh in two

    The current version can use a 2D line to split a 3D object. I never attempted it on an object like this however. Joe

    Template file

    When a new project is opened from a template file, I think the name should be something other than untitled. Perhaps call it "template: file name". Something to indicate what is being loaded without digging into the prefs. Any thoughts? Thanks for reading, Joe

    3D mouse?

    Davidorth, If you option select the undo item in the edit menu, it will give you the "undo ladder", and you can select how far back to undo. Hope this helps, Joe

    3D mouse?

    I would be lost without my Space Navigator. (3D Connexion) Once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it. A quick Google brings up this sale. http://www.studica.com/us/en/3DConnexion/3dconnexion-spacenavigator/3dx-700028_3.html?ex_ref=google_feed&gclid=CMaTh5fE79ECFcWIswodBwEIdg Hope this helps, Joe

    Where is the UV Editor with UV Unwrap?

    Seem to me, this would best be included through Z-Lab as a plugin. Been wanting this for a long time. Joe

    Keyboard shortcut dialog

    Paul, All shortcuts are customizable right there in the dialog box. For input you can tab through XY&Z input boxes. You can sort the shortcuts via the column headers, this will help find things in list view. We had an option to print the list view but that has been removed, maybe we'll see it again someday (hint, hint). Hope this helps, Joe
  14. Andrew, How large will your final rendered image be? Joe

  16. The Since that forum is closed to the rest of us, I was hoping to get a feel for a release date, month, season, year, decade, anything. Thanks, Joe

    Axis display length

    What I would rather see, is a small set of axis in the corner of the modeling window. Thanks for reading, Thanks, Joe

    Axis display length

    Z, Is it/could it be possible to change the length of the axis. Changing the size of the grid has no effect on these. Thanks, Joe

    Snap Options - Suggestion

    I miss the "match grid" check box in the snap options. Am I missing it somewhere else? Thanks, Joe
